Problem 10P

The position of a mass oscillating on a spring is given by x = (3.2 cm) cos[2πt/(0.58 s)]. (a) What is the period of this motion? (b) What is the first time the mass is at the position x = 0?

Solution 10P

Step 1 of 4

Here the objective is to determine the time period of the given oscillatory motion of the spring and then to find when will the mass reach the position for the first time.
